About Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC)

It is very important to have a comfortable place for your loved ones to live out the remainder of their lives. If your parent or grandparent chooses to leave or can no longer live in their own home, then continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) offer a great opportunity to keep the freedom of independence while getting the care they need.

Why CCRCs are convenient

Many CCRCs offer a set of levels from which you may choose. For those who are more independent, condos and single family homes are available on site, but when needs grow you can move to a more inclusive area where daily help is more readily available. When your loved one needs something more along the lines of home care, most communities have another area on site for that. The importance of this is that getting to stay in the same place over the years can offer comfort and convenience for many people. Without the hassle of moving every few years, your loved one can enjoy retirement without stress.

Tips for finding good care

When investigating CCRCs it is important to make sure that you investigate all areas of the community. Even if your loved ones are in great health, there is a chance that they may need extra care by the end of their stay. Also, make sure to see all inspection reports, possible investigations and financial reports.

You want your loved one to receive the best possible care as he or she lives out the remaining years of their life. Make sure to put a substantial amount of effort into seeking the perfect senior residence.
